Artist Statement : "In the old days my dad had told me that our ancestors used to see giant frogs and other reptiles up in Knights Inlet. They used to be spotted way up the inlet toward the glacier in the summer when it warmed up. Knight Inlet use to be the Kwakiutl people's main hunting grounds, but it is being destroyed by logging and sports hunters." Ozzie Wadhams
